    Speed is a scalar quantity, Velocity is a vector.

    this is speed "sri mulyani" the value you said above never indicates the direction so it is simply the speed .... velocity i would say is a concept just with the books ... practically we use just speed... velocity is a paper work on a cartesian plane..as simple as that

    Speed Is A Scalar Quantity Where It Has Only Magnitude But No Direction Where as Velocity is A Vector Quantity Having Both Magnitude and Direction... That is The Difference Betrwwn Them!!
